In addition to the wellknown advice of regularly applying a high factor sunscreen and protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays by wearing sunglasses, there are some lesserknown tips to keep you in top condition during the summer. A key concern is dehydra-

tion, where your body does not have enough fluid to function as it should.

Dehydration It is even more important in the summer months to make sure you are drinking enough water each day; you will need to drink more to offset increased perspiration. Look out for the classic

signs of dehydration such as a dry or sticky mouth, sunken eyes or lethargy. Treat mild dehydration with frequent, small intakes of fluid. Electrolyte solutions or freezer pops are effective but avoid liquids that contain caffeine, alcohol or large amounts of sugar. If dehydration is more advanced and you are experiencing dizziness, a faster heartbeat, light-headedness or confusion, then you should seek immediate medical attention. Another major summer health consideration is heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke. These conditions should be taken seriously, particularly heat stroke, which can be life threatening. Rushing around under the hot sun and in high humidity all day can leave you feeling unwell as your body’s cooling mechanisms are depleted and exhaustion sets in.

Heat exhaustion Symptoms of heat exhaustion include moist, pale or flushed skin; muscle cramps; heavy perspiring; nausea and headaches. Heatstroke occurs when the body is unable to regulate its temperature. Signs of heat stroke include very high body temperature (above 103 degrees); hot, dry, red skin; no sweating; confusion; disorientation; hallucinations or loss of consciousness. Avoid such heat-related illness by wearing lightweight, light-coloured, loose-fitting clothes. Don’t cut out exercise altogether as it is important to keep active all year round but limit your outdoor activity to the morning or evening hours when the temperature is not as high as it is around midday. Try to stay in the shade where possible and if you feel you’ve had enough sun for one day, stay indoors,

health fade in the heat of the sun take a cool shower or bath and rest.

Breathing Allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems can also be heightened in the summer, so if you suffer from these conditions don’t forget to take your inhaler or other medication with you everywhere you go. For many, summer time means fun and games in the water, but you must be water-savvy.

In the water Never swim alone, avoid alcoholic beverages while boating and keep an extra careful eye on children in and around water. There are a few recreational water illnesses to watch out for so that the fun doesn’t quickly turn to pain. For instance, swimmer’s ear is an infection of the ear and/or outer ear canal caused by waterborne germs, which can make the ear itch or become red and inflamed. Reduce your risk of getting swimmer’s ear by drying your ears after swimming and avoid putting objects (e.g. fingers, cotton swabs) in your ear that may scratch the ear canal and provide a site for infection.

Diet There are some dietary changes you can make to help you feel better in the heat. Eating meals that consist of a combination of carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables and limiting your fat and sugar intake will help you to maintain your energy levels. Eat light, small, frequent meals. Start the morning with a sweet, juicy fruit at breakfast. Ripe summer fruits like peaches, plums, melons and pears are exactly what your skin craves in the hot season and citrus fruits are also very cooling.

Include salads and other vegetables in your diet. Lettuce and other summer greens, corn on the cob and cucumbers contain a significant amount of water and can actually thin the blood, which has a cooling effect. Avoid extremely cold foods and drinks as they are known to interfere with digestion and sweating, thereby upsetting the

body’s natural cooling mechanisms. Barbecuing is an extremely popular way to cook in the summer time. Try to lightly grill rather than char grill food as charcoal and wood fires produce not only hydrocarbons but also tiny soot particles that pollute the air and can aggravate heart and lung problems. In addition,

potentially carcinogenic compounds can form on blackened food. You should also avoid piling on the calories with popular side dishes like potato salad and mac ‘n’ cheese. You don't need to cut them out completely but limit your portion sizes, stick to See HEALTH, page 25

Bites

Benefits

Insect bites are a common aggravation in the summer; most are painful but harmless. If there is a sting left in your skin, remove it as soon as possible. Do this by scraping it off with a hard blunt surface, like the edge of a credit card. Don’t try to pinch the sting out with your fingers or tweezers as this risks spreading venom. Alleviate discomfort by washing the area with soap and water, using a spray or cream containing a local anaesthetic or antihistamine or taking painkillers. If you experience any of the following symptoms you could be having a generalized allergic reaction, which can be fatal, and you should seek emergency

The summer definitely has its health benefits, as moderate sun exposure boosts our mental and physical sense of well-being. Sunshine can brighten the darkest of moods and it provides essential vitamin D replenishment, which is crucial to maintaining the immune system, regulating blood pressure and ensuring healthy bones among other things. Get the most out of this summer by following these helpful tips and stay healthy. ■

Be sea safe and enjoy Bermudaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waters BY TOM HERBERT-EVANS Royal Bermuda Yacht Club

Bermuda is one of the most isolated places on the planet and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surrounded entirely by the big blue sea. This summer Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure many of us are going to be in contact with the water in one way or another. Whether you sail, swim, kayak or go fishing, there are many activities in Bermuda which draw us to the water. Here are a couple of things I do before going afloat. I make sure I put on plenty of sunscreen lotion, making sure that the number on the bottle is at least 30. Remember the bigger the number the better. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to keep cool because you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hide in the shade on the water. So make sure you wear a hat and drink plenty of water if your body starts to overheat, or you begin to lose concentration and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t perform simple tasks as well. Check the weather before you go anywhere. Bermuda has a very changeable climate. You can easily check the weather channel or go online. I use a website called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;windguruâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Look for the wind strength. Anything over 15 knots starts to get a little bit choppy. A knot is a nautical mile which is a little bit more than a land mile and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what boat speeds and wind strength is usually measured in. Depending on what activity you are doing, I would always recommend wearing a lifejacket or a floating aid. So if you happen to fall overboard when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tired the lifejacket or floating aid will do all the work for you. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a whistle Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d attach it to your lifejacket too, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way of getting attention in case you get into any difficulties. Because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no shade on the water itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important to wear some sunglasses. The effect on

the glare can really harm your eyes in the long run. Try and get polarized lenses if you can. When you go afloat always tell someone what you are doing, where you are going and what time you expect to be back. Even if you are in a large group of friends tell somebody on shore. Also known as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;file a float planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; if you have one stick with it! Make sure that where you go is safe as many large ships and ferries come in and out of the island. Make sure you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anywhere near them. They can take two miles to stop, so stay out of their way. Bermuda has some of the best waters in the world and the best places for sailing and fishing. Make sure you make the most of it. Be safe, be sensible and have fun. â&#x2013;

What you need to know about bike safety BY GREG HOPKINS Winners Edge Bike Shop

One of the most important factors that parents should consider when looking at bicycle safety for their children should be the size of the bike. There is no getting away from the fact that if a child is to be comfortable, in control, and consequently safe, on their bicycle, then it is vitally important that the bike is the correct size. This of course will likely mean that during the development and normal growth of a child, it will require a number of bike size changes. Of course from an economic point of view most parents want to reduce the cost of doing this but it is important to consider a couple of points. Firstly, the See SAFETY, page 31

SAFETY: Continued from page 29 theory of buying a bike that the child ‘can grow into’ is wrong. Why? If a bike is too big, then often the child simply cannot ride the bike and has to wait until big enough. If they try, they can often have a bad experience that especially in younger children can have the effect of putting them off riding a bike, at times for years. Secondly, the fact is that unless the parents really take care of the bike, by the time the child is actually the correct size for the bike it will need replacing in any case. Kids bikes are sized by wheel size and a good ‘guideline’ for sizing is: ■ 3 to 4 years — 12-inch. ■ 4 to 6 years — 16-inch. ■ 6 to 9 years — 20-inch. ■ 9 to 12 years — 24-inch. Having selected the cor-

SUMMER SURVIVAL: A SPECIAL ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT rect size bike for the child the absolutely most important thing is, even at the youngest age, to purchase an approved safety helmet. Once again these come in a variety of sizes but fortunately most helmets will fit multiple head sizes with a simple but effective headlock system.

Helmet It is important to get the child used to wearing a helmet even at three years-ofage so that it becomes a normal practice for the child to wear a helmet. Elbow and kneepads are something that may be considered. Starting your child off with training wheels is important in order to give the child time to become familiar and confident with the mechanics of pedalling, steering and stopping without having the added pressure and difficulty of trying to balance as well. However, once a child becomes confident and

shows a desire to ride a bike without training wheels, there are a number of things that a parent can do, to make this a safer and easier transition. Firstly find a flat, grassy area to teach your child. Shelly Bay field is an ideal example. Lower the seat on the bike so that the child’s feet can be placed flat on the ground, giving them more confidence as they learn to balance. Hold the saddle from behind and walk with the bike so that you are behind the child. As they become more competent you can release the saddle, often without the child noticing and before they know it they are riding alone. Gradually raise the saddle to the correct and most efficient height. As the child gets older and begins to ride alone, educate them on safety rules, rules of the road and insist that they wear a hel-

met. No helmet, then no riding. If they are using public roads and are likely to be out in the dark they must have lights fitted to their bikes. Other basic bicycle requirements that must be considered that can also affect safety are correct tyre pressures.

Check tyres Tyres that are too soft affect the bike’s handling characteristics. Tyres that are over-inflated can cause the tyre to come off the rim. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations — they will be clearly marked on the side of the tyre. Also check the tyres for wear and replace as needed. Regularly check the condition and effectiveness of the brakes. This is often overlooked but is of course vitally important from a safety perspective. Depending on the amount of use, brake pads will need to be replaced. ■
